The 2nd Annual Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) dominated the social calendar in Lagos this past weekend. The event came to a glittering climax at the Gala & Awards Night which took place on the 3rd of December 2011 at the Oriental Hotel in Victoria Island.
A long list of superstars from Nollywood including Kate Henshaw, Genevieve Nnaji, Stephanie Okereke, Omoni Oboli and Rita Dominic graced the event alongside entertainment/media industry maestros Amaka Igwe, Ben Murray-Bruce, Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, Celine Loader and a host of others.
Hollywood was represented by screen divas Lynn Whitfield and Tichina Arnold who remarked that they thoroughly enjoyed the AFRIFF experience.
Awards were presented and guests were enjoyed top-notch entertainment provided by chart-topping duo P-Square and Nigerian Idol Season 1 alum Zoe Chinaka.
It was a great year to wrap up the Nigerian movie industry calendar. We are definitely looking forward to the third edition of AFRIFF in 2012.
